January 2014: Endorsed Drastic “Cuts of 16 Percent Across the Board” To The Federal Budget To Reduce Spending To 18 Percent Of GDP January 2014: Endorsed Drastic “Cuts of 16 Percent Across the Board” To The Federal Budget To Reduce Spending To 18 Percent Of GDP. “At a Tea Party Forum during the campaign, Hurd said that, ‘Congress needs to cap federal spending to a percentage of GDP- 18% is a good number because that was the number when the budget was last balanced. That would translate to cuts of 16% across the board.’” [Burnt Orange Report, 7/10/14] Repeated Support For Cutting Spending To18 Percent Of GDP “We Need To Reduce The Entire Pie To Get There.”\ “We need to go to a low tax, low spend government. We need to reduce federal spending, and that’s across the board. We should fix it to a certain part of GDP. I think 18 percent makes sense; that’s what it was the last time we balanced the budget. And we need to reduce the entire pie to get to there, and then once we get there, we can start talking about each individual pie piece,” Hurd said. [KLRN, 14:00, 1/31/14] Similar Plan to Cap Federal Spending Would Force Deep Cuts in Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, the CAP Act, a proposal by Sens. Corker and McCaskill to limit federal spending to no more than 20.6 percent of GDP – a higher level than Hurd suggested – would “inevitably force enormous cuts in Medicare, Medicaid, and possibly Social Security.” [CBPP, 4/15/11; EPI, 6/22/11] Voted For FY 2016 Budget Resolution Repealing The Affordable Care Act, Slash Pell Grants And End The Medicare Guarantee Voted For FY 2016 Republican Budget To Repeal The Affordable Care Act, Slash Pell Grants And End The Medicare Guarantee. In March 2015, Hurd voted for the FY16 Republican House budget that would repeal the Affordable Care Act, slash Pell grants and alter Medicare. “It also includes parliamentary language, called reconciliation that orders House committees to draft legislation repealing the Affordable Care Act. Under budget rules, that reconciliation repeal bill cannot be filibustered in the Senate and would need only a majority vote to pass. The budget would turn Medicaid into block grants to the states, cutting health care spending for the poor by $900 billion. The food stamp program would also be turned into block grants and cut by hundreds of billions of dollars. Special education, Pell Grants, job training and housing assistance would all be cut. Medicare would transition to a system where future seniors would be encouraged to use government-funded vouchers to purchase insurance in the private market.” The resolution passed 228 to 199. [H. Con Res. 27, Vote #142, 3/25/15; New York Times, 3/25/15] House Republican Budget Would Turn Medicare Into Voucher Program, Denying 470,003 Individuals in TX-23 Access To Medicare’s Guaranteed Benefits. The Republican Budget Committee “estimates nearly $150 billion in savings by turning Medicare into a voucher program for anyone 56 years old or younger, an idea previously proposed by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), the former Budget Committee chairman. Republicans say their ‘premium support program’ would help control Medicare costs.” The House GOP plan would move Medicare to a voucher program by 2024. There are 470,003 residents in the TX-23 district under the age of 45. [Politico, 3/17/15; Census, accessed 3/17/15] House Republican Budget Would Cut Pell Grants, Individuals in TX-23 Received Over $28 Million In Pell Grants in FY 2015. According to New York Times the Republican Budget would “cut the size of Pell Grants, the popular federal financial aid program for higher education.” According to USASpending.gov, Texas’ Twenty Third District received over $28 million in Pell grant funding in FY2015. [New York Times, 3/17/15; usaspending.gov, accessed 3/17/15] House Republican Budget Would Eliminate Tax Benefits That Provides $1.5 Billion In Relief To

1.6 Million Texas Families In 2015. In 2015, 1,588,000 Texas families will receive $1.5 billion in tax benefits that would be eliminated after 2017 under the House Republican budgets. [White House, 3/24/15] House Republican Budget Would Make It So 2,630 Fewer Texas Children Have Access To Head Start. The House Republican budget proposal, which maintains sequestration levels for domestic discretionary spending, would make it so 2,630 fewer Texas children have access to Head Start services. [White House, 3/24/15] House Republican Budget Would Make It So 163,900 Fewer Texans Have Access To Job Training & Employment Services. The House Republican budget proposal, which maintains sequestration levels for domestic discretionary spending, would deny job training and employment services for 163,900 Texas residents. [White House, 3/24/15] House Republican Budget Would Increase Prescription Drug Costs For As Many As 345,500 Texans. The House Republican budget proposal, which repeals the Affordable Care Act, would reopen the Medicare prescription drug donut hole. Closing the donut hole helped 345,500 Texas seniors and people with disabilities save an average of $950 in 2014 alone. [White House, 3/24/15] House GOP Budget Caps Pell Grants For Ten Years As Tuition & Other Costs Increase. “The booklet also makes clear that the plan contains big cuts in Pell Grants, which help children from families with modest incomes afford college. Although Pell Grants already cover a much lower share of college costs than they used to, the plan would freeze the maximum grant level for ten years even as tuition and room and board costs continued to rise, and then cut Pell Grants in other ways as well.” [CBPP, 3/17/15] FY 2016 Budget Cut Non-Defense-Discretionary Programs By $759 Billion Over The Next Decade Including Education And Job Training, Public Safety And Public Health. According to the National Education Association the FY 2016 Republican Budget would “Cut Non-DefenseDiscretionary programs by $759 billion over the next decade, including education and job training, public safety, public health, among other critical programs already at historically low levels.” [National Education Association, 3/17/15] House GOP Budget Turns Medicare Into A Voucher Program For Those Age 56 & Younger “The GOP-run Budget Committee estimates nearly $150 billion in savings by turning Medicare into a voucher program for anyone 56 years old or younger, an idea previously proposed by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), the former Budget Committee chairman. Republicans say their ‘premium support program’ would help control Medicare costs. It would not be implemented before 2024.” [Politico, 3/17/15] House GOP Budget Cuts Medicare By $148 Billion. “Price’s budget would cut Medicare by $148 billion through 2025. Starting in 2024, Medicare beneficiaries would choose from a range of options, including traditional Medicare and private coverage. The government would issue fixed payments directly to the plan.” [Bloomberg, 3/17/15] The FY 2016 Republican Budget Proposed Policymakers Get Together To Find Solutions On Social Security. The FY 2016 Republican Budget stated “the budget creates a bipartisan opportunity to find solutions by requiring policymakers to ensure that Social Security remains a critical part of the safety net.” [Draft Text of FY 2016 Republican Budget, 3/17/15] NWLC: House GOP Budget Would Revoke Improved Coverage For Maternity Care And Preventative Services, Would Allow Insurers To Treat Being A Woman As A Preexisting Condition. “The Price budget would:... Repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), including the tax credits that 5.4 million women currently use to purchase health coverage, and the Medicaid eligibility expansion that provides health insurance to millions more. The budget plan would also revoke improved coverage for maternity care and preventive services, including birth control, and allow insurance companies to once again treat being a woman as a pre-existing condition.” [National Women’s Law Center, 3/18/15] NWLC: House GOP Budget Would Raise Taxes For Low-Income Working Families – TwoThirds Of Benefits Go To Women & Their Families. “The Price budget would:... Effectively raise taxes for low-income working families by allowing expansions of the Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) and Child Tax Credit (CTC) to expire after 2017. Two-thirds of the benefits from these tax credit improvements go to women and their families; letting them expire in 2017 would push an estimated 16.4 million people, including 7.7 million children, into or deeper into poverty.” [National Women’s Law Center, 3/18/15] FY 2016 Republican Budget Advocated For Lower Tax Rates For Corporations. According to the Republican Budget Summary the budget supports “lower rates for…large corporations” [Republican Committee on the Budget, 3/17/15] FY 2016 Republican Budget “Reduces The Corporate Tax Rate.” The FY 2016 Republican Budget stated the budget “reduces the corporate tax rate.” [Draft Text of FY 2016 Republican Budget, 3/17/15] CBPP: House GOP Budget “Sure To Significantly Increase Poverty, Hardship, And Inequality.” “The conclusion is inescapable. The budget would cause tens of millions of people to become uninsured or underinsured, make it harder for low-income students to afford college, shrink nutrition assistance, and squeeze many other such programs. Consequently, it’s sure to significantly increase poverty, hardship, and inequality.” [CBPP, 3/17/15] Voted For FY16 Budget Amendment Repealing The Affordable Care Act, Slash Pell Grants And End The Medicare Guarantee Medicare While Requiring No Offsets For Increased OCO Defense Spending Voted For FY16 Budget Amendment To Repeal The Affordable Care Act, Slash Pell Grants And End The Medicare Guarantee While Requiring No Offsets For Increased OCO Defense Spending.

In March 2015, Hurd voted for a budget alternative known as Price amendment #2 offered as an amendment on the floor that would repeal the Affordable Care Act, slash Pell grants and alter Medicare while requiring no offsets for increased OCO defense spending. “Tom Price, R-Ga., also submitted an amended version that included increased defense funding without requiring cuts in other areas to offset the spending. Price’s plan increased funding to the Overseas Contingency Operations Fund by $2 billion over the committee plan, to $96 billion, and requires no offsets. The version that passed out of committee would have required offsets over $73.5 billion in the OCO fund, which pays for wars and other overseas activities and is not subject to sequester caps.” The resolution passed 219 to 208. [H. Con Res. 27, Vote #141, 3/25/15; US News and World Report, 3/25/15]

Voted For FY16 GOP Budget Conference Report

Voted For Republican Conference Report On Budget For Fiscal Year 2016. In April 2015, Hurd voted for a conference report outlining the Republican Congressional budget for fiscal year 2016 and budget levels for 2017 through 2025. “House and Senate Republicans agreed on a unified budget plan Wednesday that would allow them to bypass Democrats and send President Barack Obama legislation to repeal or revise his landmark health-care law. The budget proposal spells out the Republican Party’s priorities by calling for $5.3 trillion in spending cuts to reach balance in nine years.” An agreement to pass the Conference Report passed 226 to 197. [S CON RES 11, Vote #183; On Agreeing to the Conference Report, 4/30/15; Bloomberg, 4/29/15] Called For $4.1 Trillion In Reductions To Entitlement Programs While War Funding Totaled $96 Billion. “Of this, $4.1 trillion in reductions would come from programs including entitlements like Medicare. Discretionary spending in 2016 would be limited to $1.016 trillion, while war funding would total $96 billion, far above Obama’s request.” [Bloomberg, 4/29/15] Conference Report Reduced Funding For Pell Grants, Low-Income Housing Assistance Programs, And Food Stamp Program. “The budget slashes domestic discretionary spending by trimming away at several major priorities for Democrats. The final bill includes a reduction in funding for federal Pell Grants and housing programs for low-income earners, and cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, also known as food stamps.” [Washington Post, 4/29/15]

Voted Against FY16 Congressional Progressive Caucus Budget

Voted Against FY16 Congressional Progressive Caucus Budget. In March 2015, Hurd voted against the Congressional Progressive Caucus budget that promised 8.8 million jobs by 2017 and $4 trillion in deficit reduction. The budget repeals the sequester, cuts taxes for families, closes loopholes for corporations, reverses pay freezes, expands benefits for federal retirees, and strengthens health care and retirement programs. The amendment failed 96 to 330. [H Con Res 27, Vote #136, 3/25/15;
